On the 30th of July
will be running in the Outback Marathon at Uluru to raise funds for the Alice Springs Women's Shelter. Our Women's Shelter is one of the busiest in Australia per capita and is drastically underfunded. In the past year the shelter has had to turn away 1600 women as they just do not have the resources to help. The shelter is in need of new facilities, including a play area for the large number of children that are seen at the service with their mums.
This cause is especially close to Renee's heart as she escaped a violent relationship in her past. She shares more about this on her
page and on
. While she has reached her target of $5000, it would be great to see that target double and really make a difference!
